The Benefits of Partnering with Medical Recruiting Specialists

Find talented applicants.

Jun 5, 2018

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ February 2018 report, there are 552,000 open positions in the healthcare/social services industry. To find the most talented applicants to fill these specialized positions, many providers contract with professional recruitment firms. 

There are several advantages of working with an agency, some of which are listed below.


Pre-Screening Process

An appropriate screening process results in acquiring top-notch talent for your organization. A firm with experience in hiring in the medical profession will look far beyond a candidate’s resume; they have resources that enable them to probe deep into work histories. 

Market Knowledge

Medical recruiting experts are up-to-date on the latest hiring trends. They can suggest ways in which your company can gain a competitive advantage and help you attract and retain top talent for your organization. Furthermore, a professional will provide the latest legal guidelines for which you should be aware.

Top-Notch Talent

When you work with a professional firm, you eliminate the time-consuming process of weeding out the good from the not-so-good applicants. You will interview from a pool of candidates who have gone through a rigorous evaluation process. From there, the firm will present you with specific prospects hand-picked to meet your needs. The only thing you need to do is make the final selection.

Broader Reach

An agency can access tools and resources to reach an in-depth selection of candidates. Access to a deeper pool provides a better chance to find staff that meets specific workplace requirements such as diversity quotas, specialty, experience, per diem, temporary or seasonal needs.

Cost Effectiveness

Although you will pay fees for this service, you will realize savings by not having to hire and rehire for the same position. Also, you will eliminate the cost of lost revenue that results from any unfilled positions. Time is another cost associated with finding, screening, interviewing and hiring staff. 

As you can see, there are several reasons why you should work with a recruitment firm to fulfill your staffing needs. Staffing within the medical profession requires precise skills in recruitment as well as experience in the industry. Eliminating the time-consuming exercise of finding, screening and recruiting talent is a significant benefit. When you hand the baton over to a trusted recruitment firm, you will rest assured in knowing that the most qualified applicants will fill your vacant positions.
